Although the UK's Information Commissioner handed out monetary penalties for serious breaches of the Data Protection Act for the first time this week, a new survey has suggested that UK consumers support even tougher sanctions for organisations that are guilty of losing personal data. In a poll of 5000 consumers, conducted for LogRhythm by OnePoll, 62 percent of consumers felt that organisations should receive large fines for data loss with 31 percent going as far as to suggest company directors should be subject to criminal proceedings.
